Stopped in for a 'final-final' with some business associates after dinner - awesome selection of wine - nice place to relax with a laid back vibe, good music mix playing and very cool waitress (sorry forgot her name). Cheers

Can't say enough about this stellar establishment. They have wines for ever ones palette and with the "Cheers" environment if a "can't miss" place. The corkage charge is ok, and the selection is great. Will be back often.

Maby I was totally enamored by my friends loveliness and didn't notice at the time but apparently I paid $15.00 for my glass of Dutton Gold Chard (6 oz.) and $15.00 for... More

The staff are friendly and it is a real local hang out. Comfy lounges and great service, sit back, enjoy the wine with a cheese plate and then head over to HT Grill and drink some more wine by the firepit!

Tracy, Fred, and their staff are friendly, warm, and knowledgable about wines. They have a good selection of boutique wines that are not widely known, and they are able to obtain these wines before they become popular. This is a great place to pop-in for a glass before or after dinner, or to share a bottle with friends while relaxing.

We go wine tasting all the time, go to wine tasting bars all over Los Angeles and wineries all over California, Italy, and Greece. Have been to Friends of the vine a few times and never been very impressed. If you buy a bottle of wine from them, there is a $9 corkage fee on top of the cost of... More
